Online Book Fair October 5-18

Hello Whittier Community!  

We are so excited to be having an online book fair fundraiser!!  Our usual book fair company, The Story Cupboard has created an online book fair, with the great quality of books and activities we have so enjoyed and relied on for many years.  If you are getting books or holiday gifts, please consider supporting this local book fair company through our school book fair fundraiser.   The Story Cupboard, a local independent book fair company since 1994, is hoping to return to an in-person book fair when possible!  The book fair from the Story Cupboard is a wonderful opportunity to support getting new books for our library and teachers, as well as support a local business!!  Our book fair dates are indicated below, however, you can begin previewing now.  Your order will be available for pick up at the school about 5 days after the book fair ends.  If you would like to receive books before our book fair, select a shipping method and they will be delivered to your home.

Thank you to the 500+ families who have registered for school! This helps us to plan online learning. If you haven't yet, please register! We're unable to assign kids to classes without complete registration. Go to https://apex.slcschools.org/apex/f?p=1999%3A1%3A0%3A%3A%3A%3A%3A&tz=-6%3A00 to register.

If your family has completed registration - and need a school district laptop - please contact your teacher to let them know of this important need. The COVID19 pandemic has created many challenges and opportunities for all of us.

School Meals

Hello.  Child Nutrition will be serving meals Monday-Friday from 11:00-12:30 beginning Thursday September 3.  These meals will be free for kids 18 and under.  We will provide a hot lunch for the day of pick up and breakfast for the next day.  We will be outside the North doors by the parking lot.  Please drive up to our serving spot and let us know how many meals you need.  Children do not need to be present but these meals are for 18 and under only.  Walk ups are welcome as well.  Please come join us and let us help you feed your family.  Let your neighbors and extended family know too.  Children do not need to be SLC school district students.  We want to feed as many kids as we can.  Thank you!

MEALS FOR STUDENTS – “LUNCH TODAY, BREAKFAST TOMORROW”

Starting on Monday Mar. 23, we will have a change to our Meals for Students program.

  • Depending on demand, sites may remain open longer if families are still in line after 12:30 pm.

+1 Campaign

This year, the Whittier PTA and ELP Steering Committees want to encourage you to think "+1" any time you are purchasing clothing for your own child.  Find a good back-to-school sale on uniform items? Consider buying one extra piece of clothing or one extra outfit that you can donate.  Are the seasons changing and your child has outgrown a few items that are still in good shape?  Think Whittier first. We will have a bin located in the main office where you can drop off these new (or gently used) uniform items throughout the school year.  Together, our efforts can make a big difference for the children in our Whittier community!
